The Boca Juniors vs Bolivar Copa Libertadores match will be held this Thursday, April 7, 2016 at the Estadio La Bombonera at 3:30 PM Pacific. Boca and Bolivar will meet once again after tying 1-1 in March 10 in La Paz. These teams form part of Group 3 which has Argentina’s Racing in first with 5 points, Bolivar in second with 4 points, Boca in third with 3 points, and Deportivo Cali in fourth with 2 points.
The team coached by Guillermo Barros Schelotto will have a difficult match in which they are the favorite to win, but also because a tie or loss will complicate their qualification into the next stage of the Libertadores. The ‘xeinenzes’ have been very strong on defense only receiving 1 goal (against Bolivar), but they have also been the worst offense with also 1 goal in favor. Against Bolivar the offense will need to produce on their scoring opportunities to change the negative course this team has taken throughout the competition.
Bolivar will most likely line with defensive tactics in order to earn at least a draw in the always fearsome La Bombonera. With a tie, they would remain in second place at least another week, while a win could lead them into first place if Racing ties or loses against Deportivo Cali.
The Boca Juniors vs Bolivar Copa Libertadores match will be televised on Fox Deportes at 3:30 PM Pacific.
